I’m a long term but previously silent reader in Sydney Australia. For most of 2016 your site has been unreachable for me, and I thought it must be down. Turns out it is being blocked by the Australian carrier Optusnet* (my ISP.) I’m now using the Tor Browser to access your site.
See my thread on an Australian electronics forum with trace route and ping details: http://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/optusnet-blocking-a-news-site-what-to-do/
